Life can be puzzling. People can be puzzling. But above all, your relationships can be most puzzling. Let's face it: All life is about relationships: personally, professionally, and socially. What type of leader are you? Do you really understand why you think and behave as you do? Jeremy will use the Color Code to help gain insights into your leadership style, what motivates you, and how to be more successful in work and life.

As a millennial, Stephen shares what he has learned and experienced to help leaders of millennials and millennials themselves come together to discuss the future of the workforce, challenge assumptions and empathize with one another.

Smōk features smoked meats, vegetables, sides, and sauces in ways that are both nuanced and forthright in flavor, color, and texture.
